The Bun Braid

 
This hairstyle tutorial is great for medium to long hair! I used my extensions to add extra length!

You can start with curled hair to get the look similar to mine, or you can do this hairstyle with straight hair. Have fun experimenting!







Top: Madison (local boutique), Jeans: Banana Republic Outlet Skinnies, Necklace: Ebay (J.Crew look-alike), Earrings: The Limited

  14. I love your site! It's the only way I was able to learn how to braid my daughter's hair. And this outfit is awesome - the necklace is a great find! I've added you to my blog roll on my blog. Thanks for the great tips.

  15. Hi, Kate! Crazy how I stumbled on your blog! Last night my sister was on her iPad, on your blog and I looked over and was like, "hey! I know that girl!" We went to Bible Church together, well forever ago, in highschool and did core group stuff together. Do you remember? Ha! Taylor Stevens (now, Thornton). Anyway. Love the blog! I am a fellow blogger too and yours is just amazing! Congrats, my lady!

  18. I love this look, I have to try it and your necklace is beautiful. Do you have any tips for someone like me who gets up really early in the morning (5AM) to be able to still have time to make my hair look nice for work? I have to at work at 7:00am, I shower in the AM and most of the time just put my hair up, trying to straighten and than do some curls, plus makeup does not leave me enough time. But I want to start to wear my hair different and try out a lot of your tutorials. Have been a follower for a couple months and I love your blog.
